  2. Know Your Tutoring Options! Whether you attend a ground campus, online, or even both NAU wants you to be successful. Smarthinking tutoring services are available through for online courses for FREE through your D2L classroom. On-campus tutors are also available for students. Please reach out to your academic advisor for more information on the tutoring options.
  3. Join the NAU Social Community
    One of the best ways to be successful in class is by reaching out and connecting with other students and alumni via your favorite social media sites. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram!
  4. Technical Support at Your Fingertips
    Sometimes when you’re online, things do not go the way you had planned. We offer technical support to students throughout the week. Just call (800) 548-0602.
